The most common question that most women ask is ‘How to build muscles without getting bulky? ’ Most people think that they will end up being bulky if they try to build muscles. But both of them are completely different concepts. What women want is to look toned, lean and fit but not overly muscular. You can get a lean body you want without putting too much of unwanted muscle size if you focus on the right type of exercise. But there is nothing wrong if a woman is muscular, it’s completely their choice and preference.
Sometimes women shy off while lifting weights. That is because they think they will build muscles and body structure just like men. Well, when you lift weights, tiny micro-tears occur in the muscle and when these tears are repaired by the body, the muscle becomes a little bit stronger and larger. But in women, the muscle will not get too large due to less amount of testosterone in their system. That is why men bulk up, and women too but not as much as men.
First of all, learn your body type so you can adjust your diet and workout accordingly. Knowing your body type is very important when you’re deciding on your fitness goals and it becomes way more important when you’re planning how to achieve your goals. Everybody lose weight and build muscles in a different way so it’s very important to train your body according to your body type.
Avoid certain types of exercises if you want to get lean and not bulk. Every exercise has various health benefits but there are some exercises you need to avoid in order to not look bulky especially from your legs.
